Choosing the correct Convotherm Combi Ovens

Posted by: Neil Willis |  Tuesday, July 08, 2014

Getting the right combi oven can change the performance of your kitchen.

Selecting the correct combi oven

Convotherms goal is to make life in a commercial kitchen easier and everyday more and more chefs are making Convotherm combi ovens their choice.

So, how do you choose the correct combi?

A-La Carte Restaurants

The Convotherm MINI is perfect for smaller operations - with a width of only 515mm they fit into any kitchen where space is at a premium.

There is no compromise on performance, the MINI range offers a 6 or 10 GN 1/1 tray cooking capacity allowing you the versatility to change your menu effortlessly, whether you are cooking, baking or steaming.

Convotherm Mini Combi

General Kitchen

In a busy restaurant where speed and efficiency are vital, choose the Convotherm 7 to 40 tray GN 1/1 combi models to suit your operation. You can scale up depending on the number of covers you feed in any one sitting.

Only Convotherm has the EasyTOUCH control board and Advanced Closed System (ACS) that provides outstanding heat recovery when loading menu items during service, eliminating time delays in meal production.

The addition of tray timer systems ensures the operator can control cooking times for individual items

Banquet and Production Kitchens

Convotherm 20 and 40 tray GN 1/1 combi steamers are the right choice for large volume catering operations. A general rule of thumb is 10 people per GN 1/1 tray, so 200 people would be a 20 tray oven and 400 people a 40 tray oven.

The Plated Banqueting System delives reassurance of serving delicious dishes at the right time and the correct temperature.

Combined with ECO-cooking system for energy saving up to 25%, ideal for products with longer cooking times, with proven significant increase in quality - the meat is much more tender and retains more moisture.

Key Features include

  • Disappearing door
  • EasyTOUCH user friendly digital system
  • Advanced Closed System for consistent food quality

    Convotherm Mini Combi

    Posted by: Neil Willis |  Thursday, October 31, 2013
    The Convotherm range delivers a new range of innovative, intuitive kitchen technology that provides you with incredible functionality, astute cost-effectiveness and the enduring confidence that quality culinary fare can be produced each and every time. As the art of cooking evolves, so too must the kitchen technology that serves it. A key approach for Convotherm is to deliver this capability - providing an incredible level of adaptability and functionality while delivering ease of use across a range on individual skills levels and multi-faceted industry applications.

    The space saver – MINI combination oven steamers


    Minimum space, maximum performance – that's the ethos behind the Convotherm MINI range, a series designed to deliver incredible functionality while occupying an extremely compact footprint. With a maximum width of 515mm the units are perfect for cafes and other businesses where space is at a premium. There are three cooking programs available (convection, superheated system and steam), a mobile solution model.

    EASY ToUCH – the new standard combination steamers

    The new patented EasyToUCH programming, the precision of advanced analytical tools or the clever use of space and capacity to do more with less. With a large colour touch screen and a simple, easy-to-use interface the new EasyToUCH system provides an incredible new level of functionality to the modern kitchen. The system caters to all skill levels with a range of interactive options available. So business owners can be assured that quality can always be consistently maintained.

    EasyEco – save energy, save money

    According to the current DIN 18873-1 standard the new Convotherm Eco-cooking system saves up to 25% energy. Due to Convotherm's outstanding heat retention via the Advanced Closed System the oven utilises the residual heat captured within the cooking chamber for an extended period. Apart from saving energy there is also a significant increase in quality. Switching from Eco-cooking to convection and superheated steam methods can be done at any time.

    Advanced Closed System (ACS)

    The Advanced Closed System delivers both unique advantages for cooking and remarkable cost-saving measures. With unrivalled consistency of steam saturation no manual adjustments are required. Vitamins and minerals are retained due to the low oxygen cooking process, allowing for the retention of food's natural colour and taste. Individual flavours also intact even when there are different types of food being cooked at the same time, and no expensive or unhealthy fats are required to aid the process.

    Then there are cost savings. The ACS can use up to 30% less energy and water usage in comparison to conventional cooking techniques. The closed system enables the hear energy to remain in the cooking chamber so, with no reheating required, there can be far shorter cooking times.

    Greater control

    Convotherm's door rotary lever locking system is specially designed for a safer kitchen environment. By rotating the robust door handle ninety degrees the door will open far enough to allow the hot steam to escape automatically and safely upwards. The door then closes easily with a simple push, even when your hands are full.

    Crispy & Tasty

    The Crisp&Tasty function helps your food achieve crisp crusts while maintaining a beautifully succulent interior. Crisp&Tasty can be individually switched into the cooking program at three different levels, and the dehumidification function also allows for no loss of energy in the cooking chamber.

    Press & Go

    Perfect results at the touch of a button. You can store your favourite recipe on a selected key then, at the simple push of a button, call up the required cooking steps for the dish – allowing you to reproduce top quality dishes any time you need.

    Core Temperature Sensor

    Several highly sensitive measurement points ensure absolute control over the core temperature of food being cooked. This innovative multi-point core sensor controls and monitors with a high level of supervision and, in the case of deviations regulates the required oven temperature automatically.

    Delta T

    Delta T cooking provides operators an evenness of cooking like no other, when utilising Delta T your Convotherm controls the temperature variance between the food's core temperature and the operating oven temperature. The benefit of this control is a reduction in excessive residual heat penetrating the food during cooking which may result in overcooking of your products.

    CONVOClean – automatic cleaning system

    The chore of cleaning has never been this easy. CONVOClean, an automatic cleaning system that provides you with guaranteed standards of hygiene thanks to automatic steam disinfection and hot air sterilisation. Based on the level of need four different cleaning levels and a quick cleaning function can be individually selected.

    CONVOControl – kitchen management

    CONVOControl allows you to manage your appliances from a central computer and produce automated HACCP documentation in accordance with food hygiene regulations. This system provides the ability to programme, use pre-set start times, monitor and block operating panels and transfer programmes with speed and ease.
